They are in fact lighter in weight and easier to carry around. Whichever gun case you choose, you will want to make sure it it lockable, the whole point of a gun case is to make sure the weapon can be kept out of reach of others and yourself when not in use. Something you can easily carry around and customization for your specific type of gun are some other things to look for.

  • One modern and popular choice is the portable and lightweight soft gun and gun accessory case, often made from nylon and lined with soft foam.  These can also be more custom and come in choices of fine leathers.
